of electromagnetic forming, digital printingand advanced surface modification.Currently under development is a processcalled physical vapor deposition. This tech-nology is used to deposit thin film coatingsonto ferrous and non-ferrous substrates. Inlayman’s terms, it creates a “near-chrome”finish that can be used to simulate stainlesssteel on refrigerators, ovens, washers anddryers. In the not-too-distant future, consum-ers can look forward to improved durabilityand beauty on a wide array of household ap-pliances.American Trim hopes to build a new pro-duction facility that will create 60 new jobs,replacing many lost to off-shoring. This fa-cility is expected to generate annual revenuesin the $12- to $14-million range.American Trim’s adaptability has landedthe company more than $10 million in grant
funding from the Ohio Third Frontier Wright
Projects program, which provides grants tosupport specifically defined near-term com-mercialization projects. In collaboration withLima’s Rhodes State College, the companyrecently unveiled the Materials DepositionCenter at its Lima facilities.
